Vintage Sewing Cushion

I only finished the Vintage Sewing Cushion off today. I used one of my crochet motifs that I made a few weeks back for the top. I also added few drops of Rose oil whilst I was stuffing...my favourite scented oil!
I am going to make a small crochet bag next, to hang off the side of the cushion, to put bits and bobs in, and will gradually add antique bits around the outside pockets. I love rummaging through all my old crafty bits...to see what treasures can be used!
I hope that you are all having a great Sunday!

This is just gorgeous. I love all of it. It's just a shame the pattern would cost me so much to get sent here to England.

Lisa, my favourite thing is vintage and your cushion is all that. I am a big ric rac girl and I fell in love with the dusty pink ric rac you've used on top of the cushion. I bet the bag you make will be yummy as well. Kind regards, Anita.

What a beautiful job you have done on this pin cushion. Making me so want to do one, but, too many other things started at present. Love the idea of using rose oil in the stuffing.
